What makes dominant allele dominant?

... (AB0-system). But it is not possible that more than one is recessive to all the others - what would happen if two different recessive genes are inherited? The same is true for dominant alleles. Therefore there has to be a mixture of co-dominant, incomplete dominant, recessive and dominant relationships ...

Have I understood this punnet square question ?

... dominant over s (wrinkled seeds) and y (green seeds), respectively. The genes for pea colour and shape are on different chromosomes and therefore inherited independently. Using a Punnett square, predict all the possible F1 genotypes. ( please imagine them in a square) SY Sy sY sy sY SsYY SsYY ...

Re: Genes in the same linkage group are inherited together?

... be 0.015, and the frequency of a crossover between genes 140 cM apart will be 1.4. The alleles of the all genes within 1.5 cM will thus tend to be inherited together much more frequently than the alleles of the all genes within 140 cM. The physical distance (base pairs) represented by a centimorgan ...

Genes in the same linkage group are inherited together?

Hi jonmoulton and wbla3335, Thanks for your post! So those 43 genes (alleles of them) in the same linkage group are inherited together. But how likely are they inherited together? I know this is hard to answer. But some genes are only 1.5cM away and others are as far as 140cM away ...

Re: Genes in the same linkage group are inherited together?

To be a bit more accurate, it's the alleles of the genes that are of concern here. The order of the genes themselves will remain the same barring genetic events such as deletions, insertions, translocations, or inversions. You can get more information by searching for "linkage disequilibrium&qu...
